Esther Ralston is great in this story.

Excellent twist at the end.

Subject: All The Time in The World (Tales of Tomorrow).
Season 1, episode 37.
Original air date: 13 June 1952.
A woman proposes to rob New York`s Metropolitan Museum, using a wristwatch which accelerates time for the wearer, so their movements go undetected by anyone more than 5 feet away. The small-time crook she hires for the job doesn`t care where the artworks are going or why the woman who identifies herself only as `The Collector` wants the masterpieces.
Cast: Esther Ralston: (The Collector), Dom Hanmer (Henry Judson), Lewis Charles (Tony), Sam Locante (Bartender), Jack Warden (Steve) and Bob Williams (Narrator).
From IMDB.

Subject: the interesting ms ralston
esther ralston looks too tall and is too well spoken to have been a star of silent pictures during the "flapper age" . it is said that after she lost her money and she found work in sales at a new york department store she would deny her indenity to customers who remember her from her heyday. with her looks she probably just fooled herself

Subject: Arthur C. Clarke story. Spoiler at end of review.
I hope Mr. Clarke saw this before he died.

In his "The Collected Stories of Arthur C. Clarke" he prefaces the short story thusly:

This was my first story ever to be adapted for TV - ABC, 13 June 1952.
Although I worked on the script, I have absolutely no recollection of the programme, and can't imagine how it was produced in pre-video-tape days!

The entire story is at Google Books, page 407

A small time crook is given a "shopping list"
of priceless paintings to steal and a personal
time accellerator to let him do it.

A panned photograph and a freeze-framed TV image
are used to show time stopped for everyone but him.

One quibble:
The collector in the video doesn't admit to being an alien as in the story.
